Get Loco

Just a quick shout out, though not entirely food related. a freiend of mine who runs Burlington Night Out (dot com) called me up recently. So I went with her to a burrito and beer tasting, called 'Pairing is Caring' at Boloco in Burlington, VT. The burritos were paired up with beers from Magic Hat and it was a great event. You have to try 'Hex' from Magic Hat. Trust me.

Good news for all you foodies is, I met a lady Nicole there who is going to be putting together another event soon in the BTV area for foodies. Get out your napkins and favorite utensils. I'll let you know more as it develops!

Oh, and here's a pic of my eats. Sorry - it was dim and I still (I know) haven't upgraded my phone.

It's a Throwdown

Our good friends over at Vermont Brownie Company will be getting a throwdown tossed their way by none other than Bobby Flay tonight at 9ET. If you love Brownies, they've got them all for you - and of course they're on Twitter @VTBrownieCo. Try their Espresso Dulce de Leche and you'll fall in love. I guarantee it. Well, at least it happened for me.

While you're there, pick one of these up... adorable:

So much more than Pizza

So I happened upon something that isn't dessert, but certainly is so much more than Pizza. What I'm talking about is Back Country Pizza. They served up some pies and slices at a COTS fundraiser - and I was happy to imbibe.

I partook of a veggie slice with summer squash, zucchini and onion -to name a few. Yummy doesn't begin to describe the experience that started with dough that wasn't your bland stretched gluten. It had interest and intrige. There was texture and nuttiness to it and it was grilled, adding to the flavor.

Well I digress, but keep your eyes on www.7dvt.com for a story about them in he next week or so or just pop over to rebelmarket.blogspot.com for a bit from the horses mouth.

All I can say is it left me wanting more... and I wasn't the only one.

One hump or two

Believe it or not, a company that manufactures Camel's Milk Chocolates is going global. See the complete story here at Reuters. Go the the Al Nassma site if you're ready to buy! I think my favorite is the Chocolate Caravan...
